Hello to fellow Mercedes owners; bought my wife a 2007 SLK280 this last summer and she loves the car. I drive a 2011 Audi A5 Cabriolet. Both are convertibles and we really enjoy driving both of them. Although the Audi does ride smoother the SLK really sounds better and is more fun to drive. Both cars are nice and we live in Arizona so we have more of a season to enjoy. I have retired just this year and hope to enjoy the cars for years to come. I enjoy reading about your thoughts with the problems and fixes those more familiar with Mercedes present. Thanks for welcoming me, I'll try not to embarrass myself with what little car knowledge I have. I have owned many different cars over the years and have tried to do the little things...you know...brakes, batteries, oil changes...etc but I am by no means an expert. That really is the great about these forums; the opportunity to learn more. Thanks again and a hearty HELLO!

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

First please update your location and vehicle (year?: 1996-2016, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Thank you
